What You Need to Make Happy Birthday Gift Tags
To make these gift tags printable, you’ll need white cardstock, scissors, hole puncher, and the printable template.
How to Make Happy Birthday Tags for Gifts:
Step 1: Print
Download the printable birthday gift tags and print on 8.5 x 11″ white cardstock (I use Neenah 65# Bright White).
Step 2: Cut & Punch a Hole
Use scissors or a paper trimmer to cut along the edges. With a hole punch, make a hole through the tag on the colored dot at the top of the tag.
Tip: The colored dot on the tag is to indicate where to punch the hole and is meant for an added decorative touch.
Step 3: Add it to a Gift
Tie the gift tag to a wrapped gift or gift bag. The tags look great with the matching free printable party favor bags, birthday printable wrapping paper (shown below) and a free birthday card to print!
